100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #55 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE — I Corinthians 15:1-9: “…For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.”
Today, we are going to look another set of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In fact, we are going to look at the most convincing type of evidence there is, and that is eyewitness testimony.
Josh McDowell wrote that, “When studying an event in history, it is important to know whether enough people who were participants or eyewitnesses to the event were alive when the facts about the event were published. If the number of eyewitnesses is substantial, the event can be regarded as fairly well established.”
As we will see today, there is an abundance of eyewitness testimony for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
1. The disciples’ testimony is evidence for the resurrection.
2. Jesus’ multiple recorded appearances is proof for the resurrection
3. Third, today, the changed life of James is strong evidence for the resurrection.
4. Fourthly, and finally, Paul’s conversion is evidence for the resurrection.
